Headline: SKYE KIMURA-PAUL GETS THE JOB
Posted on June 20, 2014 by admin in Hone Harawira, Press Releases“When I invited applications for a Press Officer on Facebook, it drew such a lot of attention it even made the Dominion Post!” said MANA leader and Tai Tokerau MP, Hone Harawira. “But when I said ‘no prima donna’s please; my ego’s big enough for the both of us’ it clearly didn’t put anyone off ‘cause I got more than 100 comments and 20 plus applications.”
“Some of the applicants were very good but in the end I chose somebody I’d worked with during the Tobacco Inquiry, Skye Kimura-Paul.”
Ms Kimura-Paul has spent the last 12 years advocating for tobacco control in Aotearoa and was instrumental in the legislative and policy changes to make Aotearoa Smokefree by 2025.
“Skye brings a lot of energy to the role, heaps of experience in working in public health, a strong work ethic, te reo Maori, and a passion for everything she does.”
“I think she’s going to be great” said Harawira, “and I think MANA is going to be all the better for her involvement.”
For further information please contact Skye Kimura-Paul, (027) 881-9999.
